Light and shade

The recent sunny weather is a mixed blessing for the photographer. On the one hand, everything that is well lit is well lit. But, stuff in the shade is in the shade, and the contrast between the two, if you are trying to include both, means that one or the other tends to suffer. But then I spied a clutch of parked motorbikes, all dark except for their mirrors, pointing upwards and reflecting the brightly lit building behind and above, and I think that I was able to use that contrast to my advantage:

Many photos recently. The good weather has been a long time in arriving.

Too many photos recently? I hope you agree not. After all, it only takes a moment to decide you want to look no further at a photo, if that’s what you decide. A bad (you think) photo wastes very little of your time.

One thought on “Light and shade”

  1. One comment on the original posting:

    I have been enjoying your photos; those you posted for the last few days are all excellent (and I find them excellent by the same reason you noted, long time ago: if it was me I’d took those pictures in exactly same way, from same spot, cropped them similarly, etc…)
